Thank you for reading my introduction and nice to meet you all!

I'm looking for a creative developer/technology-driven designer based in NL to work on our project Homegrown In(ter)dependence.

Homegrown In(ter)dependence is a web and community-driven project practising digital independence. Rebelling against gigantic tech cooperations, we aim to practise self-reliance in virtual spaces by researching and developing apparatus that can be built in an individual's home.⁣

- Based in NL
- Have less than 4 years of working experience
- Need to go through Stimuleringsfonds' open call!

Some specifics...
- Project duration: March - June 2023, 2 days a week⁣ (1 day in The Hague, 1 day at home)
- Budget:⁣ €9,250⁣
- Application deadline:
7 December 2022⁣

Find more info at...

Please feel free to share it with your net-ighbourhood :]

Call for Participation:
OPENCOIL workshop 🔋🔋🔋

"The pavements of many cities have been flooded by so-called 'dockless sharing vehicles'. This workshop explores the impact of such micro-mobility services on (public) urban space by re-appropriating their decentralised infrastructure as a space for experimentation, while also addressing the conditions and effects of this infrastructure."

Microsoft Teams rant as a project 

Given the sacrosanct Microsoft Teams rants I've read in the timeline, I thought to share this recent lil project of mine which is called "A CV of Microwork" and commissioned by Art Goss, full of Teams cameos :)

"Set up multiple alarms, scan a QR code, wait for someone to join the call, fill availabilities for a meeting, retrieve and/or change passwords, agree to barely-read terms of service, solve a bunch of captchas, type emails in your mind, forget to send them… A pulverulence of microactivities and minipassivities ends up eating a substantial portion of your day. The “hyperemployed” (I. Bogost) incessantly relive the trauma of “the death of the secretary” (M. Gregg), whereas living secretaries do this tiny digital work for themselves and others. The paperwork explosion of the ’60s, which computers were supposed to end, has become a collision of digital microinteractions – a microwork explosion. In this CV of microwork, the life experience of the traditional résumé coincides with user experience."

Among the streams of instant entertainment on web, there are two e-mail newsletters I love:

-
Center for Humane Technology
humanetech.com/
A newsletter exploring technology, human behaviour, ethics, and systems reform.

Together with the podcast 'Your Undivided Attention' bringing the discourses of ethics on technology, this newsletter investigates the pitfalls of the current tech industry and suggests sustainable solutions.
-
Naive Weekly
kristoffer.substack.com/
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly - Observations From The Internet Wilderness.

If Center for Humane Technology delivers fact-based important information, Naive Weekly is an emotional, poetic, warm, and colourful newsletter bringing us to the forest of the web. It introduces personal and literary projects built on the internet every week, it feels like a surprise gift for me every time!
